Plant Details

A wonderfully vigorous plant which loves tumbling over walls or rocks. Beautiful snow white flowers cover creeping mounds of green foliage from May to July.

A vigorous, low creeping plant, useful for spilling down sunny slopes or over rock walls. Very rewarding.

Drought tolerant when established.

From the Alps and known in Britain since 1780 but now rarely seen in nurseries, which is a real shame as it is a super plant.

Height: 10cm

Common name(s): Tumbling Ted; Rock Soapwort.

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
